On the Wings of a Song

Pictures of people taking pictures. :) Or, "hey, look, a camera almost identical to mine. That looks like a fun prop for the Droste effect." And if I can have a bookstore and something knitting-related in the photo, then all the better. Part of the charm of knitted graffiti is the anonymity - but where's the adventure in that? ;) Here comes the sun - and the cherry blossoms and the bumblebees. (And the allergies, for the unfortunate. I am, gratefully, not one of them.) Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, brown eyed girl - who drops her camera under a park bench and sees it as a self-portrait opportunity. Ah, yes. Glasses. Mine. The result of reading in dark corners since I learned to read. While they help, it is sadly impossible to push a bookcart with glasses perched on the end of one's nose without looking like a Librarian. Raindrops are fallin' on my head - and splashing in the water. I love the little concentric circles dripping drops make. Sun shining through…

Preconceived Notions

I know I did a "my world" theme one week - this is kind of an offshoot of that, but more random. :) Because there is very little that is more random than a plastic T Rex devouring a protesting cow on a windowsill at the Library. This is what I giggle at while I'm processing Holds. There's also a double jointed toy soldier and a selection of rainbow-colored animals. I have been terrified of the Michelin tire guy since I was four, and we coincidentally happened to go tire shopping the day after I saw the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man scene in Ghostbusters. (Admit it - there is a resemblance. Especially when it's an 8 foot blow-up Tire Guy and you're young and impressionable) Did I mention Holds? This is what they look like. Stacks of books and media that get scanned, tagged, alphabetized and placed on a specific shelf near the check out. I find it entertaining in itself - besides the menagerie on the windowsill and the fact that there are almost always cookies. ;) Tra…

Deluge

This week was a flood - of water, of emotion, of happenings. Water first. This is the field by my house - there were beavers swimming around in it. It was probably ten or more feet deep in places, but it went down pretty quickly (once it finally stopped raining) Yarn from Claudia Handpaints to design with. Lots of lovely linen is a magnificent thing to get in the mail. ::drool:: I keep telling myself how much the rain will be appreciated once summer's dryness comes - and distracting myself by taking art-shots of it. That helps, too. Shelves upon shelves, rows upon rows and several floors ---- of books. Now that's something I'll gladly drown in. Light play doesn't have anything to do with inundation of any kind - but it's preeetty. :) I did find out Friday that I get to teach classes at the local Jo Ann craft store, so that was exciting at anyrate. Working with that linen and waiting to go to Compassion House. Feet on the headrest/shoulders on the steering wheel is actual…
